The Clean County Commission is taking applications for the Good Neighbor Grant, available to neighborhood groups and homeowner associations. The purpose of the grant is to enhance the sense of community and environmental wellness of our neighborhoods through the development and accomplishment of sustainable environmental and beautification placemaking projects. Projects will focus on the physical aspects of common areas through the installation of native plants, erosion control methods, placemaking for community members, and other methods to improve environmental quality and minimize negative impacts. Examples include community garden, entryway landscaping, trail improvements, communal compost, playground and pool area landscaping, energy saving techniques and litter prevention measures. Please note that due to COVID-19 impacts, funding awards may be delayed.
Good Neighbor Environment Matching Grant Applications are available online and must be submitted prior to 5 p.m. on Sept. 15, 2020. For more information contact the Environmental Sustainability Office at 757-259-5375 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
